(February 2013) – Bob Dikman, SIOR, CCIM, CRB, ALC, and Chairman and CEO of The Dikman Company recently organized a live and silent auction in conjunction with the 48 Hours at Sebring presented by Champion Porsche. The auction raised over $16,000 for the Ronald McDonald Charities of Tampa Bay, and with pledges continuing to roll in, organizers expect that this years receipts will greatly exceed last year’s total.
The live auction included a wide variety of items, the more notable being a pair of Alain Prost Autographed Stand 21 Racing Gloves, a set of Hoosier tires, and JRZ dampers. “We are proud to be able to organize this event again and to provide necessary resources for such a worthy cause,” said Dikman. “It is our hope to help further the mission of the Ronald McDonald House.”

They also provide comfort, care and support to children and their families through the operation of core programs like the Ronald McDonald House, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, RMHC College Scholarships, and grants to other non-profit organizations that assist children.
Marketing & Communications Manager Alison Barrick attended the Saturday evening banquet and spoke to the attendees about Ronald McDonald House. “This is such an incredible group of people who are passionate about their cars, and about supporting Ronald McDonald House. Their generosity and support of RMH means so much, not just to our local organization, but to all the Ronald McDonald Houses this group supports.”
